Mediation of family law disputes is often a very good way to resolve your family law matter.  You still need to make sure that you have full information about income, assets and liabilities and you will need to obtain independent legal advice on any settlement tentatively reached in mediation. You can do mediation with our without a lawyer present.

The downside to mediation is that any tentative settlement is not binding on the other side until a mediation agreement is formally signed, preferably with the benefit of independent legal advice.
